Biggest Surprise - CHASE BROWN'S VEGAS COUNTRY

Biggest Surprise - CHASE BROWN'S VEGAS COUNTRY

Believe it or not, there are people who actually don't like country music. This writer happens to be a part of that crowd. Nevertheless, when an entertainer is as explosive as Chase Brown, it's impossible not to be drawn in. The handsome ex-Texan has gained a rabid following by giving country classics a Sin City spin. You might be inclined to call him a "Rhinestone Cowboy" if it wasn't for the fact that he's constantly ripping off his glittery shirts.

Yes, Chase Brown has a case of raw sensuality that only amplifies his powerful voice and stage presence. That makes CHASE BROWN VEGAS COUNTRY much more than your typical one-man show. The athletic entertainer engages his entire audience by hopping into the crowd, pulling eager fans up for impromptu dances, and even sailing across the stage while atop a mirror-ball stepladder. 

Chase Brown Vegas Country performs every Friday evening at 9 pm inside downtown's NOTORIETY Live

Biggest Suprise (Runner-up) - BurlesQ

Biggest Suprise (Runner-up) - BurlesQ

Are you familiar with the phrase "Your reputation proceeds you"? Sometimes that isn't a good thing. Such is the case with BurlesQ, the bawdy dance revue at Alexis Park Resort. Hampered by initially negative reviews, the production was retooled into something truly worthy of an off-Strip jaunt. Boasting a body-positive cast of all shapes and sizes, BurlesQ starts out with a splashy opening number and maintains that momentum through the final bows. Directed by Folies Bergere vet Cari Byers and hosted by award-winning comic/impersonator Sean E. Cooper, BurlesQ is the fast-moving sexy treat that nobody saw coming. Full review here
